The Best Ways to Store Your Favorite Seasonal Decor
Transitioning from fall to winter decor—then packing it all up again—means it’s important to have your holiday decoration storage under control. It might be the least exciting part amid the seasonal festivities, but managing your decorations can save you hours, both when storing them and retrieving items for the next holiday season. Fortunately, storing your Green Brook household’s holiday decorations doesn't have to be a hassle. Keep in mind the following tips and storage solutions from Access Self Storage.
Group Like Items
With self storage units in Green Brook, NJ, we’re the experts when it comes to efficient storage methods. One of the simplest holiday storage tricks is to group items seasonally for easy retrieval. Consolidating similar decor also makes it easy to see what you need, especially if you store items in clear plastic containers with easily visible labels. Try grouping your decorations within each season using one or more of these categories:
- Purpose or function
You’ll be relieved to realize that every gold ornament or red accent piece is in the same place when it comes time to decorate!
Decor Storage Tips for Maximum Efficiency
Whether you make use of a storage unit or place your decorations in the basement or attic, keeping in mind practical storage tips can help protect your belongings while maximizing space and minimizing the amount of time you spend searching for what you need.
These methods take up less space so you can add to your collection as needed:
- Nest items inside one another when possible.
- Store things vertically for easier retrieval.
- Store picture frames on their sides together in a container.
Simple vs. Stylish Holiday Decoration Storage
What you store your items in matters, too. If you’re safeguarding your decorations in self storage, you may care less about how your containers look. In this case, the focus is on efficiency. But if you stash your seasonal decor in a spare bedroom, looks matter. Try these holiday decoration storage alternatives:
- Antique trunks
- Vintage cabinets
Vintage furniture adds character, but there are plenty of efficient new storage options available that are designed specifically to store certain items. These containers can be life-savers as the seasons change:
- Rolling bags for artificial Christmas trees
- Divided ornament containers
- Spools for storing holiday lights
Keeping lights detangled and ornaments neatly divided can make all the difference when you put away and retrieve seasonal items. And if you store these items in your garage, placing them on overhead storage racks frees up valuable room.
